Someone Following you?
If you drive for real, you piss people off. Occasionally you piss them off enough to follow you. I’ve had people try to follow me several times. Most of them give up after they see I can’t be shaken 🙂
What to do
First find out if they are following you by taking a few turns.. If they continue to follow you past 3-4 turns, try a U-turn. If they follow you with a U-Turn. You know for sure…
IF you think you’re seriously in danger, drive to a police station or if you don’t know where one is, or are too far, drive to some big local public place. Most people won’t screw with you if you do that.
What I do is just keep driving till they give up, one time a guy didn’t like me passing him so the followed me every turn. It was sorta like the movie “Duel” cuz I never did see who it was. They had their entire car tinted big time. I drove them all around town before they got sick of it and turned around 🙂
If you ever see some accident with no police around, or something that might endanger people, like that dude who parked his truck in the middle of the road at night with the lights off. Take the time to stop off and dial 911 and do something about it. Both times I did it, I was the first to call and had I not, who knows what would have happened. Don’t say hey someone else will do it. If you have to sit there and warn people till the police show up, do that too. That’s where my flares will come in handy =] Get involved.
Broken Clutch Cable
At sometime your clutch cable might go out. It’s happened to me about 2-3 times. Your clutch goes all the way to the floor and it becomes useless. Rather than pulling over and leaving it and towing it, it’s still possible to drive it if it’s manual of course. What you do is turn your car off at the intersection and brake to a stop. Then when it’s your time to go, start the car in first gear, the thing will lurch forward and you start going trying to get the car at the perfect rpm to jam the stick into 2nd. You might have to skip from 1st to 3rd. When it
happened to me, I couldn’t get it into 2nd only 1st and 3rd. IF you can avoid stopping, it’s all the better. I would slow down really slow at red lights ignoring all the people piling up behind me till the light turned green. I
turned on my emergency flashers if they got too restless. Stop signs I rolled through them slow enough to fake like I sorta stopped. I turned on my flashers. I also held up my hands to make sure no one moved even if it was out of awe of some dude holding up his hands telling them to stop. Remember there is the right rpm to shift it, and you have to jam it into gear ignoring all the nasty sounds. And to stop you have to turn the car off because there is no good way to shift it into first with it on. Using this saved me a lot of trouble and allowed me to get home to get a ride for a clutch cable. No towing..
I think either 2 or 3 times my brakes have gone out. The pedal just goes to the floor. It is possible to drive a car with no brakes. I did it for like 60 miles on freeways and city streets. I was driving along and I came up to a stop and the flipping brakes gave out. I ended up on someone’s front lawn. I called up my dad and he said just drive it so I did. When you work at it, it’s pretty easy. What you do is shift to slow down. It’s pretty impossible with an automatic, yet another reason to go with stick. What you do is leave a huge ass space between you and cars and shift down and use the emergency brake for the final stop. Using that I was able to drive all of creation until I could get it fixed. Once you learn, you learn for life. It’s kinda fun actually 🙂
No Taillights (but headlights)
Use your emergency flashers. That should alert the people behind you, who would otherwise not see you. Then get the car home till day or to a shop.
